HC provides rigorous academic programs that prepare every student for collegiate study, but our community goes beyond the classroom. Our faculty and staff engage students in service and leadership opportunities through student governance, athletics and fine arts that build confidence and skills to assist in developing a life focus. We understand we are training tomorrow's leaders and examine issues that encourage students to seek knowledge and understanding before drawing conclusions. We educate and train leaders with the solid values and convictions that a Christian worldview imparts.
Everyone who works at HC is here because they're passionate about Christian education and shaping young lives. That remarkable dedication is the most valuable aspect of Houston Christian - to offer every student commitment to their success. We hire the best possible teachers, and they demonstrate each and every day that they love students and that teaching and challenging them is their great reward.
